Hands off: physicists theorize about what would happen if you put your hand inside the Large Hadron Collider.

Cashing in
TechCrunch up and sold itself to AOL, to become part of AOL's online news empire.  You could read the post founder Michael Arrington wrote about the deal, but it's probably more fun to listen to the song that a reader submitted.

Blowing up
Kottke shares what physicists think would happen if you put your hand in the Large Hadron Collider.  We at least know what happens when you leave a sandwich in it.

Getting around
The City Fix points out that the use of bus services like Greyhound and MegaBus is on the rise.  Could intercity bus be a challenger to high speed rail, for investment dollars?  In a place like upstate New York, where road infrastructure is already being used for trucking and cars, making the roads better could be easier than laying new railroad track.  If we do invest in roads, Infrastructurist warns that we should do it right, and not create sprawl.

New excuse for the tech support guy
Careful what you search for: Information Week has the details on a Websense report that shows that when you search, read the news, or fuss around with social networking, you're never more than two clicks from stumbling into a den of malware.

Hoarding
Technology Review muses about whether or not we're all hoarders - of information.  Obsessive research about product purchases and constant reading of the news could be signs that you're no better than the lady with 27 cats.

Meanwhile, according to Information Week, someone's hoarding all the IP addresses - we're running out.

Let’s eat!
Here we break from the list o'links to let you in on a little secret.  The Innovation Trail is comprised of very hungry people.  So we're always thinking or talking about food.  In fact, we even post to correspond to meal times, and refer to times of day by their dining opportunity (you're reading "the early bird special" right now; Zack Seward's post earlier today was "second breakfast").  So it's with great pleasure that we present you with this list of apps for eating around the globe, via Mashable. Nom nom nom!
